Abstract At large scale contaminated sites the typically applied approach
of conventional, drilling-based investigations is prohibitive expensive,
and information will be solely available at a limited number of
boreholes. Hence, it can be expected that great uncertainty exists
about relevant subsurface structures, their physical and geochemical
properties, and on the distribution of contaminants in the subsurface.
As a progress in site characterization, geophysical methods can be
combined with Direct Push technologies. Especially, the combination
of Direct Push technologies with pulled geophysical arrays provides
a new scientific and economic relevant extension of traditional site
investigation concepts.
We will present a field test demonstration, which shows a variety
of methods for a rapid and effective site characterization in terms of
structure, hydrogeological, and chemical parameters at a field site in
Rho (Milano, Italy). The measured data of high quality and resolution
will help to improve the conceptual model of the site.
